Covered Grass reviewed on Bluegrass Today

Toogaroo, the latest CD by the German band Covered Grass, has been reviewed by John Goad on Bluegrass Today. The thirteen tracks are all original compositions, and the album can be downloaded from iTunes and Amazon. Covered Grass consists of Corina Aurin (lead vocals, mandolin), Volker Fisher (banjo, dobro, vocals), Felix Eichert (guitar), Joon Laukamp (fiddle, mandolin, vocals), and Carsten Manz (bass).

The band appeared at last September's Appalachian & Bluegrass Music Festival at the Ulster American Folk Park in Northern Ireland, before going to the USA to take part in a 40th anniversary cast reunion and celebration of the TV series 'The Waltons'. They had been invited to the reunion on the strength of their song 'Goodnight John Boy', which is one of the tracks on Toogaroo.
